Andrew O'Brien, Kyle Hayhurst and Professor Inder "Jiti" Gupta received the best presentation award for Session E2 of the ION GNSS Conference for Effects of Rotor Blade Modulation on GNSS Receiver Measurements. O'Brien and Hayhurst are both graduate students in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) and graduate research associates at the ElectroScience Laboratory. They are advised by Professor Gupta.

ECE Professor Inder "Jiti" Gupta (also with the ElectroScience Laboratory) and Professor Yuan Zheng received the best presentation award for Session A2 of the same conference. The paper, Positioning in GPS Challenged Environments: Dynamic Sensor Network with Distributed GPS Aperture and Inter-Nodal RF Ranging Signals, was co-authored by D.A. Grejner-Brzezinska, I.J. Gupta, K. Huggins, Y. Zheng, H. Sun, and C.K. Toth.

Professor Gupta and Christopher Church, a doctoral student in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, won the best presentation award of Session A5 of the conference for their paper, Calibration of GNSS Adaptive Antennas. (10/09)
